I genuinely care and i don't just say it, i show it. I put in more work, spend more time and just enjoy people. I take videos of swings and break them down, I charge less/ and or spend more time with you than the other guys.
I love Golf, im a Real Estate Agent because i love people, coaching is my passion. I wanted to be a pro but injuries derailed my trajectory , and I decided that I was getting more out of teaching. I also enjoy making new friends doing this.
Andrew was a great teacher. He was able to quickly spot and correct some mistakes I was making and my shots improved very quickly. He is a good communicator and it was very easy to understand what he wanted me to do. I will definitely be working with him more.
He makes you see your progress, every lesson i’ve ever had with him , from start to finish i see positive reinforcement. He makes you laugh when frustrated too, which helps, but knows when to be serious. He’s not like the other guys i’ve taken lessons with, who are on their phone, or distracted, only spend 30 minutes with you, charge 50-100. I once showed up 35 minutes late, and he told me, listen man don’t worry about it, get here when you can and i was so flustered. He didn’t charge me that day.
Very personable and knowledgeable about the game of golf. He uses all the right tools and can quickly gauge where your game is and where you need improvement. Spends extra time on the lesson so you get more than your moneys worth. Highly recommend!
Generally i will speak with them on the phone first, discuss where they are currently in their game as far as handicap, and experience. What they think they do well, or poorly, then we meet. I then watch them go through their bag hitting a couple shots, and decide on a plan of attack. Often you see results within a single lesson because things like grip, alignment, ball placement and tempo are so important. But once we fix and work on the fundementals to get positive reinforcement in your brain , we dive deeper into your swing, whether it's improving angle of attack and dynamic loft to gain more yards on your drive, or get a high ball flight, or it's working on a better take away and hip/balance transfer to encoursge a more consistent shot.
I am not a pro, never will I suggest that I am. I hold a 9 handicap currently, my lowest ever handicap was 5. I tore my rotator cuff at 5 handicap and wasn't able to play golf for years, so i dove into teaching it to friends and neighbors to stay close to the game i love. I got really good at it and I think it's simply because I care and I sit at home thinking how I can make someone better, doing constant research.
Depends on how far i have to travel, or if you come to me. Generally my base is 50/hour for a range session. But honestly we ultimately spend closer to 90 minutes together because I lose track of time easily. I enjoy working with people, especially people who have a goal like breaking 100 or 90 etc
Working at junior camps, helping my teammates with their swings , things like that. Taking lesson myself and using these techniques to help others, but then it turned into an addiction haha.
Kids from 5-17 , begginers ranging from 5-52 years old. 14 year olds who shoot 90 , 30 year olds who shoot 85. I have worked with scratch golfers but i generally work with those who are shooting 80-100+
Watching my newest client hole a bunker shot his first time ever in a bunker, after only 10 minutes of lesson time.
Be an open book, i don't expect each student to swing the exact same, everyone is different. Whether it's age, or flexibility, something may not work for you that works for another, but be open minded.
What they want to achieve. Set goals, if you are shooting 105 , say "hey i want to break 100 on a regular basis, or I wanna beat my dad!" haha Think ahead!
